What is it about?
The authors were part of a pilot course designed to help teachers promote a sustainable mindset in their students. As part of the course, participants were asked to keep directed learning journals. We wondered whether a content analysis tool such as Leximancer could give us information about the extent to which the course had succeeded. We posed 4 questions of increasing complexity. The content analysis suggested some areas of success and some areas for improvement.
